SkyView user reviews :
Fantastic …Bit of a need when it comes to this stuff… Never expected this app to be as good as it is.. Installed as a random… Love it now.. !!
It looked great. However, when I tried using it in the field it refused to work properly. It reversed the night sky. If I was looking west it showed me the east and vice versa. It would tell me to turn on my location, even though it was already on, every time I tried to calibrate it. I’m giving up on it as its infuriating. Looks great though, not sure if I mentioned that
The Very Best!!!!! I literally spent 2 hours downloading, comparing and deleting star viewing apps. This one is undoubtedly the best one out there. And it’s free!! (There are upgrades you can add, but for the novice stargazer it has everything you need). Do yourself a favor and save time. You won’t find a better app for seeing what’s really “out of this world!” P.S. (the people that say it’s not accurate obviously didn’t calibrate their sensors, or they are just idiots….. Just wave your phone in a large figure 8 motion continously down to a small figure 8 and it will sort itself out. Thank you Terminal Eleven for the effort you put into this, there are people out here that genuinely appreciate your work.
Awesome app! I especially like the information feature that gives you that little trivia on the objects you see in the sky and the projected tracking feature lets you plan your sky watching.
